Your root partition is not part of an LVM so you can't directly attach your volume named "lvm".

It's possible to migrate your information from a standard root partition to a logical volume. You'll just need a large enough logical volume (77 GBs >)

Keep in mind that downtime is required as you cannot perform it while / is mounted.

Here's a quick guide for RHEL-based systems: Convert root filesystem to LVM
